About Sojourner Truth

Who was Sojourner Truth?

Our emergency domestic violence shelter for women and children, Sojourner Truth House, is a tribute to “Belle,” a woman born into slavery in 1797. In 1843 she walked onto the pages of history when she became Sojourner – God’s pilgrim. A second name – Truth – came to her “in a voice as true as God’s is true.” Sojourner Truth traveled widely, speaking about slavery and women’s rights and the dignity of all people.
